An Islamist militant group called the Al-Tawheed Brigades took credit for firing the rockets at Israel.

The IDF added that they hold Hamas, which governs Gaza but is supposed to hand over control to the Palestinian Authority on Sunday, responsible for any rocket fire emanating from the Strip.

Around two hours later the army said that another rocket, fired form the enclave's north, exploded in southern Israel. The rocket did not set off a siren because it landed in open area, the Spokesperson's Unit confirmed.

Israel closed the Gilboa Crossing in the northern West Bank after Palestinians threw rocks at it during a demonstration, the Israeli Defense Ministry said Thursday.

The attacks come one day after President Donald Trump controversially announced that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and begin the process of moving the U.S. Embassy there.

Medical sources in Gaza told Ma'an that Muhammad Saleh Haddaf was severely injured and left bed ridden after an Israeli airstrike hit his home on 8 August 2014, killing four of his family members and injuring several others.
